After months of rumors and leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S10 has finally arrived. It's a truly gorgeous phone thanks to its nearly bezel-less display and stunning glass back, but as with all of Samsung's latest handsets, you'll want to outfit it with a case in order to ensure its good looks for years to come. If you're planning on picking up the S10, here are the cases we recommend getting.

Thinnest you can get

Totallee Thin Case

Staff pick

Not a fan of big, bulky cases? Enter Totallee. Totallee makes phone cases that are jaw-droppingly thin, making this a great choice if you want to safeguard your Galaxy S10 from scratches and scuffs without sacrificing its gorgeous design. You can get it now in matte and glossy finishes.

Redesigned favorite

Spigen Neo Hybrid

I love the Neo Hybrid Series, and it got redesigned this year. That's right, friends, the Herringbone texture is gone, but in its place is a new waved texture that should offer more grip. This case is still drop dead awesome, and it comes in four fierce colors including my favorite Arctic Silver!

More than a case

Samsung LED Back Cover

Samsung has a few official cases it's selling, one of which is this LED Back Cover. The case itself provides decent fall and drop protection, but the real draw here are the LED lights built into the back of it. You can customize the LEDs to light up to show notifications, incoming calls, and a lot more. It looks pretty sweet.

Not too expensive

Vinve Carbon Fiber TPU

This case from Vinve offers a great combination of style, protection, and affordability. Available in four colors, Vinve's case is made out of a soft, yet durable TPU material, has a striking pattern on the back that allows for added grip, and comes in at a price that's easy on the wallet.

Get your grip on

Speck Presidio Grip

This is the iconic Speck case, with classic raised ridges and five cool, two-tone color schemes to choose from. The ridges on this durable case feature a silicone coating for extra grip and a distinct flair.

Hidden wallet

Spigen Slim Armor CS

Spigen's Slim Armor CS case is something special. On one hand, it's an incredibly durable case that offers fantastic protection against damage of any kind. At the same time, it has a hidden compartment on its back to hold cash and credit cards. Genius.

The (Rose) Gold Standard

Speck Presidio Clear + Glitter

This shimmering Speck case has glitter embedded right in the silicone so it can't flake off like some of those other, lesser glitter cases do. The Presidio Clear + Glitter comes in two distinct styles: clear with gold flecks and a rosy pink with gold flecks. If you need to go Rose Gold with your case, this is the one to do it with.

So many colors

Anccer Colorful Series

The Galaxy S10 is already a pretty great-looking phone, but if you want to jazz things up a bit more, we think you'll like Anccer's Colorful Series line of cases. The thin design offers good protection without being too bulky, there's an included refund warranty, and you can choose from a variety of colors that are available in smooth and gravel textures.

Leathery goodness

Samsung Leather Back Cover

There's something just so darn alluring about real, genuine leather. Thanks to this official case from Samsung, you can cover your S10 in it. Along with giving your S10 a seriously great look, the case also offers awesome protection without adding too much bulk.

All natural

B BELK Wooden Shell

For people that really want their phone to stand out from the crowd, it's hard to go wrong with B BELK's Wooden Shell case. The base of the case is made out of a rugged TPU shell, but on top of that is a real wooden cover that's available in cherry, walnut, and teak finishes.

Keep it cool

Olixar Breathable Case

Want another slim case option? Check out this one from Olixar. Available in blue, red, rose gold, and black, this case has a very thin design that doesn't add any extra bulk to the S10 but still keeps it safe from general wear-and-tear. One unique aspect is the mesh design that's meant to help keep the S10 cool and prevent it from overheating. If you plan on doing a lot of heavy gaming, this could be worth a look for that feature alone.

Classy and clean

Snakehive Leather Wallet

Wallet cases are always a great choice, especially when they're made as well as Snakehive's. The genuine leather design is noticeable right off the bat and is a wonderful compliment to your S10. You can get the case in a few different colors, ranging from the traditional chestnut brown shown here all the way to a bright yellow.

$37 at Amazon

Pretty and pretty durable

X-Doria Defense Shield Series

X-Doria's Defense Shield has some more traditional Black and Red bumper variants, but the Iridescent version with its wonderful purple/green/blue shimmer is just darling and perfectly suited to the S10's Blue and Green colors — if your market is lucky enough to get green — and it's drop tested to 10 ft.

Clearly great

Spigen Liquid Crystal Air

While a case is great for keeping your S10 safe, it also covers up your new phone's devilishly good looks. If you want ample protection while letting all the fine details of the S10 shine through, you'll want to get the Spigen Liquid Crystal. It offers protection against scratches and drops, is shock absorbent, and is easy to apply and remove.

Built like a tank

ArmadilloTek Vanguard Series

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, we have the Vanguard Series from ArmadilloTek. This case has a three-layer design to protect your S10 from virtually everything. There's a kickstand on the back, precise button covers, and your Galaxy S10 can still wirelessly charge even with the case on.

$21 at Amazon

Even though it's not for everyone, I can't recommend the Totallee Thin Case enough. As someone that truly hates large, bulky phone cases, Totallee has been a dream come true. Alternatively, if you want something that offers a bit more protection while also being easier on the wallet, the Vinve Carbon Fiber TPU case is a great, no-frills option that'll keep your S10 safe from just about everything.

If you need a case for the Galaxy S10+ or S10e, we have you, um, covered, too!
